Delmarva's own Jones Boys band has been together since January 1992. This energetic group enjoys playing current country hits along with traditional country music. Darren Jones, the band's leader, plays keyboards and keyboard bass while his brother, Brett, plays rhythm and fills in on drums and bass as needed. Tom Kaufman is the lead guitarist but also plays pedal steel. The audience can always count on Tom's rousing rendition on the fiddle of "The Orange Blossom Special." Jim Jones, Darren and Brett's father, was an original member of the group, but he has since been replaced by Bobby Simmons, who plays drums.
The Jones Boys have appeared in Nashville and at numerous fairs, and have opened for Hank Williams III. They have performed onstage at the Harrington Raceway and Casino and at clubs throughout Delmarva, where audiences are always entertained by their rendition of songs from artists such as George Jones, George Strait and more. The Jones Boys also have the ability to perform almost any country song requested during their shows.
Scheduled to appear on Saturday at 4 p.m., the Jones Boys will share their country sounds with festival visitors.
